Biography

I am native New Yorker, born and raised in the Bronx, now living in New Haven CT.. I am a composer, arranger, trumpetist and pianist Contemporary Gospel/Jazz instrumentalist. Music has been my breath of life for over 30 years. I have studied music privately, (trumpet with instructors from Yale University, New Haven, CT., and Juliard School of Music, New York ) and have attended Yale University, Howard University and Berklee College Of Music.
What sets me apart from others, I believe, is the fact that as a solist, I am able to use my multitalentness to give my audience the ultimate musical experience. I perform on both trumpet/flugel horn and piano which allows me to please the diverse musical pallet of my listening audience. From mellow jazz, Contemporary Christian, Latin or even urban, I am able to deliver.
